We have our dinner at Station One first before buying entrance tickets, as there were slightly rain outside. Luckily the rain stopped after dinner. As usual I told the boy in the car where we going and what we going to see later and he did show his excitement on it. I foresee he should be alright for the night since he had 2 hours nap and also what he going to see is something familiar to him.
The crowd started to get pack when the rain stopped. Lots of parents and kids came to watch this Disney Lights and Lanterns. We bought 2 adult tickets (RM10 for adult, RM5 for kid. Below 90cm tall - Free). It was a small area, only 2 rows of characters display on your left and right. There are games and photo booth too. It was so disappointed, only 1 game booth is working. Here are the beautiful Land of Lanterns.
For the boy, it was ok for the first 20 minutes. He kept quiet when he saw those characters he likes and he pointed to us when we named it. After the first pic snap (without flash) with daddy, he started to make fuss and want us to carry and walk non-stop. He not allowed us to stop by and snap picture for the characters...I really don't know what he was up to this time.
We stand aside and talk to him nicely by telling him that other kids are very good and taking picture with characters. Later, he was more ok, but still demanding for carry, fuss a little and not allow to snap pic with him. Since we can redeemed a free photo with 2 adult tickets from NZX, we choose to snap one family photo in front of the Mickey Fun-tasy. The boy was back to his fuss actually. 2 shoots let us choose, one with crying face, another with cry+hand covering face.
We choose the crying one
We continue to walk visits all other characters despite his crankiness continue. So all pic turn out with him was crying and fussing one. After around 45 minutes, we left the Fun-tasy.
Once out there, he no more fuss. Both of us actually quite mad about it. But kid, what to do...hai...While I lectured him in the car and he can understand what his crankiness is all about. He not cry when I lecturing him. He even pointing his crying face on the paid photo when I asked him.
Overall it is worth visiting, just like a small Disneyland there. Disney merchandise is available there. A sourvenir shop is inside the Lantern area and some other small stalls outside too. The admission tickets also works as a cash voucher too, you can buy things in NZX using that. Festive Fun-tasy Christmas lighting will end on 8th January 2009. Follow by the Disney CNY lighting will on till 15th February. Its open everyday from 11am - 12 midnight.
